                Haven't seen a thread with recomindations or evaluations yet so here it is!
 
 Chronicles of Narnia: Three stars...the portrayals of the characters was pretty good, the little girl who played Lucy did the best though.  And the story line followed the book fairly closely.

           The good thing about working mostly in a morgue.  You can talk as much as you want, about whatever you want, and the bodies won't ever complain.

                I'm planning to see King Kong sometime this weekend, anyone seen it already? Should I or should I not? I mean its three hours worth of sitting, should I just stay home and maybe fire up a new game of Bloodlines?

 I thought the fawn Mr. Tumnus, was the best acting.  I was dissapointed over all.  It is a very emotional story and I thought it didnt pack the umph that it could have.  I'm suprised Christians aren't up in arms over it.  It is a take off of the passion, and yet they complain so much about Harry Potter (and I thought those movies were really bland).

                I really enjoyed Serenity as well.  But having reviewed the story in the one season that was out I have to wonder what happened to the creepy guys with blue gloves who made every one bleed out their ears?

 Good question.
 
 I was wondering that myself. NM.
 
 It seems the movie left a sequel open... possibly a revival of the series.
 
 Considering the injustice that happened to the series when it was on q13 (fox) it would be awesome to see a revived Firefly series on SciFi.
 
 I hear bad things about fox channel producers. They are assholes. They were the only reason Firefly didn't live long. They made sure Firefly was on a stupid, unreasonable times, and was never advertised all because the fox channel producers had a problem with Firefly's creator.
 
 Assholes.
 
 They would be in much better hands with SciFi.

 Scifi only has contract rights for reruns of series.
 Any 'first time' programmes they show usually aren`t worth watching.

 Well, I definitely enjoyed Narnia (Luckily most of the rest of the book titles aren't quite as big a mouthful as The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe).  I thought they were very true to the book and the characters in the book.  Though, part of the fun for me was having memories dredged up by this or that scene as I haven't read the books in a long while, so I'm not sure how well it plays to those who haven't read the book (though one person in our group hadn't and she still liked the movie).

 I agree Dante Sci Fi first runs SUCK big time with the possible exception the new Battlestar Galatica and even that's only mediocre.
 
 Fox killed that series before it even started.  They advertised the 2 hour special to kick off the series before the new season began then at the last moment canceled the special and showed the second episode of the series first so no one knew the back story and had missed crucial details of the characters.  I watched that show always confused trying to figure out how these people got to where they were and when Fox finally showed the first 2 hours of the show AT THE END OF THE SEASON, it was a revelation to me.
 
 Fox also killed the funniest show I've ever seen on net work TV: Action.  
 
 And they killed Brimstone a facinating show about a man back from hell hunting down other escapee's from hell.  BEST SATAN EVER!

 That's not completely true about SciFi. Sci-fi has new episodes of Star Gate SG1 and Atlantis.
 
 They also host original mini-series as well.
 
 [Edit]
 
 Narnia huhs?
 
 Isn't that made by the same people that did Passion of the Christ?

 I read the books long ago too.  I guess I thought the animated movie they did on it was excellent and i compare everything to it.  And, my big rule is to never compare remakes or sequels to their originals (Opps).

 If you think that Lion, the witch etc. is a lot like the passion read the last book in the series, talk about religious overtones.

 No Narnia I believe is Disney, Passion was a Mel Gibson thing.

 King Kong was great, Kong was a very believable character, and you sympathized with him even though he had a habit of killing innocent girls.

 Joss Whedon wrote a 3-issue Serenity comic book series taking place between the last episode and the movie, in it the blue gloves attempted to kidnap River, and failed.  The Blue-Sun corporation then decided to bring in the Operative, rather than send out more blue-gloves.
 
 Serenity was indeed an awsome film, but sadly I'm pretty sure it's the end of the series, at least on video.  There possibly will be some comic books which continue the story.

 I don't know, I really loved Farscape.

 Peter Jackson is producing Halo, not directing.
